Having built this 1911, the hammer wont engage at full cock. Upon inspection there is a gap between the slide and the hammer at full cock. I believe my sear spring is installed correctly. Cant mic the gap as the slide is in the way.

This would be a better fit in Amateur & DIY 1911s.
Questions-
What brand parts?
80% or 100% frame?
Your experience in modifying or building 1911s?
Are you saying that the slide will not push the hammer to full cock, but you can cock it by hand?

I had same problem on my 80% build.with stealth arms frame and cheap parts kit. I changed out the hammer for another and used a beavertail grip safety to accommodate the new trigger and problem was solved. Not sure.if that helps I don't have a ton of experience yet with these 1911 builds as this was my first

It is an 80% frame, I chose the components that I wanted in it. The slide will not push the hammer to full cock, and I can do it by hand. It is a new hammer and beavertail grip safety.

I had a gap between the bottom of my slide and my hammer when pulling the slide to the rear, so I figured if the hammer was switched out with another possibly longer one then when the slide is pulled to the rear then it would compensate for that small gap between the slide and hammer and it did that's all I was suggesting. im no expert on these and definitely would be better in the amateur section but thought I would offer my advice since we had the same issue with our 80% builds. you can look at my post in amateur and diy 1911s under stealth arms jig/frame 80% build it has pictures of the build and how the new hammer was different from my old one and solved the problem we had with trigger follow. hope that explains what is happening and helps you resolve the issue

Will it cock with your thumb? If so the sear nose could be too long.
